POPULAR Nollywood movie director, Kunle Afolayan, has said no female actress has ever offered him sex for a role.

The ace filmmaker told Punch that no Nollywood actress would dare to make such a move.

Kunle Afolayan said, “Personally, I have never encountered a situation whereby an actress would offer me sex for a movie role. They would not even dare come to me. They say that I am proud.

“The social media may have some advantages, but it also has a lot of disadvantages.

“It is only in the past that people would say that a director asked an actress for sex in exchange for a movie role.

“These days, some actresses would reach out to the movie director or producer and tell him that they would do anything just to be in the film.

“Hardly would they say such to me. Such a thing does not come to me and if it ever happens, I will just wave it aside. I will not respond", Kunle Afolayan said.

The movie producer born on September 30, 1974 is of Igbomina-Yoruba descent, from Kwara State. He is the son of the famous theater and film director and producer Adeyemi Josiah Afolayan aka Ade Love.

Kunle Afolayan majored in economics and started out working in a bank while doing some casual acting, before deciding to move into full-time filmmaking and taking a course at the New York Film Academy.

Since 2005 Kunle Afolayan has been active in the Nigerian film industry. He has made several extremely popular titles including: The Figurine: Araromire which was in the Yoruba and English languages and Phone Swap which featured Wale Ojo, Joke Silva, Nse Ikpe Etim and the legendary Chika Okpala.

The Figurine won five major awards in the African Film Academy and experienced tremendous success in the Nigerian movie theatres.
